Leonor Anthony

Leonor Anthony is a multidisciplinary artist based in Miami, Florida, with studios in The Hague, Netherlands and Brooklyn, New York. Born in Havana Cuba, she immigrated to the United States with her family as a young child. She is an accredited scholar, artist, photographer and published author. Anthony is world-renowned for her courageous use of materials and by creating works that invoke controversial issues in today’s society.

She is recognized for using art as a vehicle of activism. With limitless styles materials and unprecedented assertiveness, characterized by violently expressive color and jarring compositions, Anthony is able to bring awareness to issues ranging from slavery, immigration, women’s empowerment, and environmental preservation.

The imagery of her art is crafted through her unflinching willingness to elicit emotional reactions. Her intense but sophisticated style is a reflection of the artist’s unending search for freedom of expression and penchant towards iconoclasm.

In 2013, Anthony was awarded the prestigious title of Artist-in-Residence at the Florida International University Honors College.

She is the founder and curator of the FIU Honors College Art Collection and has curated several exhibits with subjects ranging from Prison Reform to the Environment. Environment preservation led her to create the NestGen Project. This biennial project, is comprised of artistic installations, incorporating a call to a collective conscience regarding our planet and the promotion of reuse, reduce and recycle principles.

Two of her monumental works are part of the Florida International University’s permanent collection exhibited at the Herbert Wertheim College of Medicine and The FIU College of Law. In April, 2017 Leonor Anthony was honored with the FIU Alumni of Distinction Award.
